We offer a specialised range of both pre and post-natal treatments that help you manage the physiological and emotional challenges of having a baby. Acupuncture during pregnancy has proven effective for our Melbourne patients as a treatment for common pains and illnesses. It is a natural way to improve the health of both mother and child and prevent complications.
First Trimester – We will help you manage the symptoms of morning sickness with a combined program of acupuncture and herbal treatments that can help reduce vomiting and nausea.
Second Trimester : Our carefully administered treatments effectively address symptoms of swelling and puffiness, and will also help bring relief to neck, back and pelvic pain.
Third Trimester : During the third trimester of pregnancy, acupuncture has been demonstrated to assist with inducing labour and may be beneficial in managing the pain and fear often associated with giving birth. Combined with herbal teas and supplements, we offer a personalised combination of treatments specifically suited for the latter stages of pregnancy.
Ongoing Post Natal Help : After your baby is born, we also offer a range of services that help your body recover from the traumas of pregnancy and childbirth. Acupuncture, cupping and Moxibustion are all effective techniques to combat many of the ailments faced by new mothers, including: fatigue, postnatal depression, restlessness, bleeding, dizziness, and constipation. Dry needling is also very helpful for breastfeeding mothers. It’s excellent for treating mastitis, and it can help remove the stress and discomfort of irregular milk supply. It can also help to restart your menstrual cycle, which helps protect your future fertility.
We also provide fertility support treatments, for women undergoing IVF.
